Ngata loses $10,000 on fine Friday

It’s Friday, which means a handful of NFL players lost some money and a few NFL-approved charities gained money. A few highlights:

1. Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was fined $10,000 for a late hit on Chad Henne in last Sunday’s game. Not a great week for Ngata, who didn’t have one of his best games against the Falcons.  (Yes, they were stout against the run.  But he wasn’t a factor on those 50 drop-backs.)

2. Giants safety Kenny Phillips was fined $5,000 for a facemask penalty he committed on Marshawn Lynch.

3. Jets linebacker Bart Scott was actually fined $20,000 for violating the league’s uniform policy.  It was previously reported as 10K.

4. Lions linebacker Julian Peterson was fined $7,500 for one of the dumbest late hits we’ve ever seen, according to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network.  It greatly helped the Jets set up their game-tying field goal.

5. J La also reports that Jon Beason was fined $10,000 for unnecessary roughness. The fine may have been higher because he was fined for a vicious hit last year.

  1. What? No fines against Steelers?

    I guess even Goodell figured he needed to tap the brakes a bit as to not appear too biased.

    More fines for the Steelers coming next week.

  2. Listen, I know a lot of people hate the Jets and don’t want them to succeed. I also realize this is about Bart talking after the game and not safety. But to fine him $20,000? Really? Late hits, personal fouls and helmet to helmet hits incur less of a fine?

    Wow man, just wow.

  3. Colts linebacker Gary Brackett was fined $10,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Mike Vick this past Sunday.

  4. Just goes to show how utterly pathetic the officating has been this year… Ngata hit him after a slide and no flags and now want to hit him with a fine. If that Tom BIEBER Brady there would have been flags everywhere,Goodell would have run on the field to check if he’s ok!! But this is the same officiating crew that let a PUNK spit in a mans face and the league does absolutely NOTHING!!!!

  5. Where does all the NFL fine money go?
    According to the NFL bylaws, all fines collected throughout the season must be divided evenly between organizations dedicated to the betterment of humanity. The following four organizations are not-for-profits whose focus is helping people both in and outside the NFL:

    The Brian Piccolo Cancer Fund

    The Vincent T. Lombardi Cancer Research Center

    The ALS Neuromuscular Research Foundation

    The NFLPA Player Assistance Trust
